And now former Doctor Who showrunner and writer of The Day Of The Doctor Steven Moffat has joined in the celebration by creating a brand new scene featuring a "much-loved Doctor Who character" which will be released online tonight at 6.30pm GMT, ahead of the simultaneous rewatch. The scene was filmed and edited remotely with a series star who will only be revealed when the scene premieres later on.
The Day Of The Doctor starred Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Jenna Coleman, Ingrid Oliver and Joanna Page, plus a number of surprise cameos, and saw the Eleventh Doctor unite with his past selves to battle classic foes and save Gallifrey from the Time War.
Join other fans around the world in the rewatch from 7pm GMT (US 3pm ET, Australia 6am ACT). Please note that the episode is not being broadcast on any TV channels at this time so you will need to have your own copy or streaming service ready for the start time.
